A new girl in town joins a cult-like religious group until an outrageous act forces her to reexamine her values and find a way to break free.

Tightly written, with well-drawn characters, and demonstrating insight into the psychology of belief and affiliation, this cautionary novel is in no way anti-religious: Dorry has found genuine meaning in worship and prayer, and at the end of the book, continues her spiritual journey, but in her own way.”
